Don’t do just the minimum. Don’t slack. Don’t see what you can get by with. Don’t try to just “sneak into” heaven. Give your all.
I love french fries, especially when the come from a fast food restaurant. And despite the fact they are usually salted a lot, I put more salt on them. But I know others can not have a lot of salt, and salt can be harmful to the heart. So how can we make sense of Jesus’ use and encouragement that we are to be salt for the earth? Just what does he mean? And what are we supposed to do to be the salt of the earth?
